If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation in an 'Old Florida' setting then Tradewinds on Anna Maria Island is the perfect place to stay. Thoroughly recommended! Great value for money and superb location near stunning sandy beach and intra coastal waterway.

This area of Florida is rather old school, family oriented, and not a lot of development, maybe a few condo building over 4 floors on the island, otherwise, its cottages and small condo/villa buildings, and almost anywhere, is close to a great beach to relax, walk, fish, swim, and play all day..or night. TradeWinds is a great little gem in...

We stayed at Tradewinds Resort the last week of September 2012. We had an awesome stay. The resort was beautiful. Every member of the staff was accommodating and helpful. Definitely planning on returning to Tradewinds Resort in 2013. The feel of the resort was very inviting.

Finally found a place that epitomizes what 'getting away' is all about. The Tradewinds is beautiful, well-maintained, and an all-around lovely stay with an even lovelier staff. Sarasota Bay is right out the window (in the apartment we stayed in) with 'jumping' fish and colorful sunrises. Right across the street is the beach on the Gulf of Mexico where beach...

We heard about this hotel through an AAA site. We spent a long weekend in April 2012 there. The cottage was very roomy and clean. It was charming and the outside areas were gorgeous with beautiful flowers. The pool was right there with plenty of chairs. It was fairly quiet the whole weekend, even considering there was some large group...

We've stayed at many of the resorts on Anna Maria Island and we enjoyed our stay here more than any of the others. The people are friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The property is well maintained. It's a great place. We've already booked to come back next year.
